BloodSpell: It Begins - Documentary


Published 2008


This is the first of a series of documentaries about the making of BloodSpell, the hit Machinima series of 2006, now also available as a feature film

This documentary follows the conception of BloodSpell in 2003, its script development, and the growth of the crew that would eventually come together to make this ground-breaking film.

BloodSpell is the unique animated "punk fantasy" feature film by Machinima pioneers Strange Company, made available in its entirety for viewing online under Creative Commons.

In the world of BloodSpell, some people are infected with magic in their blood. When that blood is spilled, the magic is released, to harm or heal. When Jered, a young monk trained to hunt the Blooded, realises he has magic in his own blood, he must flee into the slums and magical hideouts of the Blooded, pursued by the Church of the Angels who trained him.

"There's some damned fine storytelling and editing/production work here" - Cory Doctorow, author and blogger

"Blood, Angels and loads of vicious smiting: what more could you ask for?" - Alan Campbell, author of Scar Night.

""A movie that defies most of the rules of traditional film-making." - The Guardian
